Youssef Nasser: Sculpting in Time

Film My Design (FMD)

26.9.2021, 4.30pm

Film My Design (FMD) presents “Sculpting in Time”, a film that pays tribute to and celebrates the remarkable career of the late Egyptian artist and designer Nagy Shaker (1932–2018). Known principally for his costume design and his puppet-making for the theatrical musical spectacle “The Big Night”, Shaker’s career spans five decades from the 1960s and covers all areas of the visual arts, including cinema, painting, graphic art, sculpture, and interior and architectural design. In 2015, he was awarded the State Appreciation Award by Egypt’s Supreme Council for Culture in recognition of his life’s work. The film includes an interview with Shaker himself, in which he talks with great modesty about his experience as an experimental artist, production designer, and filmmaker.
